Default Hector Camacho 1982-1985

Who remembers Hector Camacho 1982 through 1985 pre Edwin Rosario if you will, thought he was a future ATG he had all the tools but after Rosario he became a safety first runner and holder he shoulda been great though

Camacho was a great fighter. He went on for too long though, and as you say, changed as a fighter due to the Rosario fight. I can still watch his early fights with a smile on my face, a terrific pure boxer. The fastest hands I've ever seen this side of Roy Jones Jr.

Camacho was a tight fighter, would have loved to see him fight a Mayweather, or Mancini at that time, but it never happened. With the exception of Howard Davis Jr, probably the fastest I have seen.

Camacho had it all but power which held him back. He didnt like to get hit either, but he took a pretty good shalacking from Chavez.

I think Camacho could punch at JL he scored a lot of kos.He stopped super tough Bazooka limon for his first title and Also scored a one punch ko over contender John Montes who showed a good chin throughout his career after Camacho kod him. Tough Vinnie Pazienza once said that camacho could punch and that he underestimated his power. I think later in his career he was just always on his bike and didnt Commit to his punches like he did when he was younger.
In a interview with Ko magazine they insuated to him how he seemed to be safety first after the Rosario fight. His replie was "Are you trying to say that Rosario turned me into a *****" He didnt like to get hit and fought on his bike alot but he showed balls and a great chin when ATGs like Trinidad,Delahoya and Chavez put beatings on him. Camacho was a great fighter and one of the top PFP GUYs for 3 years. But later was talented but 2nd tier fighter.
